Over the last few years, podcasts have become increasingly popular platforms for entertainment. I love listening to podcasts while folding laundry, on walks and even as I work. Although some podcasts remain strictly audio-based, some creators are also leveraging video to reach a broader audience. I am definitely partial to video but audio-only means I can listen while multi-tasking.
